  GYMNASTS FLIPPED FOR EACH OTHER (CLEVELAND PLAIN DEALER)

Chuck Yarborough
Plain Dealer Columnist

I used to play golf with an ex-gymnast friend. Gerald Ewing could walk under a desktop and not bump his head, but he was also one of the strongest buggers I ever met. That’s a trait necessarily common among gymnasts.

Given that, I might normally worry about the new fiance of our own Dominique Moceanu, the ’96 Olympic gold medalist. But I won’t spend a lot of skull sweat fretting over Michael Canales’ safety. First off, the guy who popped the question over the holiday weekend in Pepper Pike is a gymnast himself, having once toiled for Ohio State University. Second, he’s coaching Moceanu for the July 21-22 U.S. Classic in Virginia Beach, Va., her first “elite” competition in five years, and any athlete knows “Coach” is never wrong. And finally, Canales has an edge because he’s a DOCTOR. He just finished his first-year surgical residency at St. Vincent Charity Hospital here. No date has been set for the wedding, but I do have piece of advice for him: Don’t leave her at the vaulter.
